These must stay inside the library security gate. You can use them upstairs or down but not out to the lobby. There is a 3 hour lending period. Take good care of them and don't let them out of your sight.

Laptop Power - Batteries Or Plug-In

We will try to give you a charged battery in your laptop and we try not to check out power adapters.

Sound and Headphones

You can check out headphones when you check out a laptop but it is best if you have your own. The sound is off by default you can turn it on with the FN and END keyboard combination or with the sound / speaker icon by the clock. Only turn the sound on when you have headphones plugged in.

Bring A USB Drive

You should always have your own USB drive with you. Never work on campus without a USB drive. A USB drive is the best way to save your files.

You can also use your Hawkmail Google services to save your files:

  • Sign on to you Hawkmail Google docs account with the Google Drive. User your full hawkmail email address as the user ID in Google drive login.
  • Email a file to yourself
